I have some exciting news! Carson-Dellosa Publishing has selected me to be part of their Creative Partner Blogger Summit! Here is my letter! I am one of just five bloggers invited. I cannot wait to share with you my experiences and to hang out with the other four bloggers! I am working with the adorable Color Me Bright line!
They sent me a sample set to check out! I love it.
Onto the short u centers, I made during my snow day:
I created this Short Vowel U Literacy Packet to use with my class this week. My plans are a bit off due to an assembly, professional development, and Fountas and Pinnell testing, so I am not going to post them. Though, I am posting a short vowel phonics mini-poster at the end of this post.
Included my short u center packet:
Short Vowel u File Folder Word Wall With Pictures
Short Vowel u Mini-Poster
Short Vowel u Flash Card Page
Short Vowel u Word Sort - Students will sort word-picture cards by -ut, -unk, and -ug ending. They will then record their work.
Search/Read/Write the Room - Students will search the room for picture-word cards. They will record their findings on a recording sheet. I have provided you with a choice of two recording sheets.
Roll and Write a Word - Students will roll a word and then record it on a recording sheet. They will continue to roll until one word has "won." They will then analyze their data.
Magnify Tiny Short Vowel u Words - Students will use a magnifying glass to find tiny words with short vowel u words. They will then record their work. I have provided you with a choice of two recording sheets.
Writing Center - Students will create their own "My Little Book of Words with Short Vowel u."
Short Vowel u Rhymes - Students will match word/picture cards with their rhyming words. They will record and illustrate their rhymes.
Short Vowel u Themed Build a Sentence - Students will arrange picture cards in the right order to tell a complete sentence. They will record their sentences.
Build a Word - Students will build words using picture cards containing a beginning sound, a short vowel u sound, and an ending sound. They will then record and illustrate their words.
Spin a Word - Students will spin a beginning sound and an ending sound to build a word ending in -unk or -ut. They will then record their work. Nonsense words will also be recorded under a nonsense word column.
I hope you check out the packet on TpT by clicking here.
Here is the freebie, just click to download from Google Docs:
I got these cute pillows for Christmas and my little Greta loves them. You can find the pillows here on Etsy.
This is another Etsy find from Ruffles with Love. I also have the "Drop it Like a Squat" tank. So cute for the gym!

My mom's children's book is coming out soon! You can pre-order it on Amazon.com.
During my snow day last week and I got addicted to The Walking Dead on Netflix. I needed something to watch while working on TpT stuff. Um...The Walking Dead was the wrong choice of shows... I totally cannot focus on my computer!
